Promoting and supporting voluntary activity across South Northamptonshire


School of Life

School of life is a unique project which celebrates the skills, knowledge and experiences of all generations by engaging them in a wide range of activities that are new, fun and above all enjoyable.

The aim is to

  • Challenge stereotypes about young and older people
  • Create fabulous opportunities for exchanging skills
  • Create new networks and friendships
  • Encourage social inclusion and reduce isolation
  • Support groups to set up their own intergenerational projects

Activities that have proved to be a success in previous years such as fishing, cookery, arts and crafts, are just the tip of the iceberg. We are looking for many new ideas in addition to these favourites!
